Mia loves to cuddle.

Are you searching for the sweetest, most loving, gentlest pup? Look no further than Mia! A two-year-old, 60-pound lap dog, Mia will stop at no costs to snuggle you for as long as she can – on the couch, on the bed, on the floor, anywhere! 

The way she rests her head on your knee and burrows her face into your side will quickly melt your heart and make any bad day way better. With Mia, you'll never lack a comforting companion.

Mia is potty trained and knows basic commands. Her favorite sound in the world is that of a bag of treats opening. Her favorite activity is cuddling with you while you watch reality TV or a classic comedy. She's never met a person she doesn't love and is quick to greet anyone with a wagging tail and her signature paw handshake.

Mia is looking for her person, or better yet, a loving family to play with. She would do best in a quieter neighborhood, and as your one and only pet.

She loves you already...and you've only just met through a picture! Adopt Mia today by filling out an application at Street Tails Animal Rescue. What are you waiting for?!
